Rated 4 out of 5 by Recommend with Reservations I have been teaching this curriculum for years and trusted BJU press to do their best to investigate/research and go to the best sources for their information. I am appalled to know that I have been teaching precisely what is written on p. 171 of the American Republic, third edition, about Thomas Jefferson and the alleged Bible he has been accused of writing. It is a misrepresentation of the facts, as is the teaching that he was the most secular of founding fathers and a Deist. What primary documentation did you rely on to make these claims (because there is no bibliography attached with this text)...the revisionists of the last 100 years or Jefferson's own communications? The so called Jefferson Bible was printed 78 years after his death, using an original manuscript which Jefferson entitled "The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth..extracted textually from the Gospels in Greek, Latin , French and English. It contained not one word of commentary or opinion by him. It was an exercise or discipline for the man, which was careful to include word for word chapter and verse quotes and citations. The 1908 version printed "for Congress" and renamed "The Jefferson Bible" omitted the Bible chapters and verses and the text was rewritten in narrative form giving the false impression that Jefferson was attempting to write his own Bible. His original "Big Bible" (according to Captain Edmond Bacon) was not included in the donation to the Library of Congress because it was his personal daily companion Bible, a complete King James version. It can still be seen at the University of Virginia archives housed in Monticello. I'm disappointed because I trusted you to do the research of the original documents and give us the true Christian heritage of our founding fathers. My sources for this critique come from the book, "The Truth about the Founding Fathers of the American Republic" by Dr. Catherine Millard, and show photographic prints of the original documents and communications. I urge you to review her work and make revisions to your very important textbook, which is being taught to Christian youth all over this country. January 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by My son enjoyed learning history for the first time Very comprehensive material. The unit sections were just the right length for my son to read and answer the quiz questions on a daily basis.The CD which comes with the curriculum has helpful sheets. I did not purchase, nor have I needed, the companion Activity Book. I google additional resources if I need to supplement. The teacher's manual is a "must". I also purchased the tests which I don't think are mandatory to gain the full benefit of the curriculum but my son likes to see grades on papers/tests. December 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great supplemental student activities book! My children were taught this curriculum in a different Christian school, and now I have the opportunity to teach it at the school in which I work. I wish my children had had the benefit of the student activities book that my class is now using. The workbook is a tremendous help to reinforce concepts that will be tested. I wish the text had a larger font. Most kids struggle with the quantity of content they're expected to learn, and the font size makes reading even more challenging. October 16, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great tool. I've learned things that I didn't know before about some presidents. Great Biblical integration. I am enjoying using this book. There are great anecdotes that are in my book that the students don't have. I have learned a lot of different things about our former presidents. I like how the content shows that history does, indeed, repeat itself when a nation turns from God. I also like how the chapters are laid out including the objectives. That makes my teaching much more focused and on target. February 12, 2013
